Use this guide to plan your tour of 8th & Corinth Station.
This light rail station is located on the eastern edge of the oldest and second largest African-American community in Dallas. First settled by freed slaves in the late 1880s, the neighborhood is now part of the officially designated Tenth Street Historic District.
The station's windscreen panels and canopy columns were used as an opportunity to inform current and future DART riders of the neighborhood's deep roots in Dallas history and its abiding belief in the importance of community, family, church and education.
For example, one windscreen panel depicts a neighborhood church, Greater El Bethel, designed by William Pittman, the first African-American architect in Dallas and a son-in-law of Booker T. Washington.
Another scene honors a beloved neighborhood resident, Mrs. Georgia Moore, and a new addition to the community, the Townview Center, a state-of-the-art magnet school that opened in 1996.
A third panel depicts a favorite pastime, dominos, often played in two community parks, Oak Cliff Park and Moore Park, where generations of African-American families have gathered for events such as picnics, baseball games and church socials.
